Feature Request - DX Triple Buffering in Adrenalin Drivers

Hello.

AMD are you ever going to implement DX Triple Buffering on the Adrenalin driver? Instead of just Opengl triple buffering which is useless as most games are DX.

I still don't understand after all these years Radeonpro still has more features than your newest drivers.

Right now you need to do something because NV are light years ahead of you. What a god damn shame.

This is one feature that even NV haven't implemented right. I see many threads on the NV forums requesting a DX triple buffering option, all the replies link the Radeonpro mod.

Maybe you should change you avatar name to BOND007

You should already be aware that this isn't the place to put suggestions for certain features since this is a User to User Forum run by AMD Employees.

It is best to contact AMD Support directly or whatever means AMD has to take suggestions from Users to look at and possibly implement in their software of drivers.

But this is a good place to see if your suggestion is popular with other Users before contacting AMD Support.

Sorry thought that was a pro card question.

Re: Feature Request - DX Triple Buffering in Adrenalin Drivers

Anything constructive here?

No just a load of junk comments.

One guy says I should change my name?

One guy thinks this is about a GPU card,

One guy says you cant write suggestions/requests here, which you can.

Bloody hell.

I have already wrote to AMD directly, they don't even understand what I'm talking about. I wrote the request in plain English.

Re: Feature Request - DX Triple Buffering in Adrenalin Drivers

I was just joking about your name. Whenever I see 007 it just reminds me of James Bond the British spy.

But if you read my comment, AMD Forum is not the place to let AMD know about any features you want added. As mentioned, this is a good place to get an idea about how popular your idea will be with other Users. But that is pretty much the limit unless one of the AMD Moderators gets personally involved.

What exactly do you expect by posting your idea here in AMD Forums, if you don't mind me asking.

You have been active in these Forums for three years. As long as I have been. Have you ever heard of any Users ideas for features or improvement been incorporated in a driver or software by AMD by posting it here at AMD Forums? I haven't unless it involve some sort of Fix in AMD Drivers.

Recently, One inventor has an idea pending patent to cool several GPUs at the same time. He realized that posting it here is not going to get his idea any attention from anyone at AMD. He felt it was a good place to get other Users their opinion on his future invention. He knows he has to contact AMD directly and speak with someone in Corporate or Engineering to get any attention to his future invention.

Since only three or four Users answered and none related to your post directly, probably indicates the level of interest there is from other Users.

Well for your sake, maybe someone from AMD might happen to see this thread and act on it. You never know who is reading these threads.

FYI: JUST MY PERSONAL OBSERVANCES AND OPINION.

NOTE: I don't consider any of the comments posted here as "JUNK" since they all were trying to direct you to the correct avenue for your idea.

Re: Feature Request - DX Triple Buffering in Adrenalin Drivers

Here is a very clear explanation from the gamedev forums from 2013 as to why it's a bad idea:

And from the gamedev forums again:

And here's a great explanation from nVidia as to why, AGAIN, it's a bad idea

And, to top it all off, in 2018 with games using 4-8GB of VRAM with standard API programmed double buffers, having a third buffer slashes the available memory per buffer resulting in a decrease in FPS as there is reduced space to store the frames.

So there are -very- good reasons it doesn't exist, and shouldn't exist, else Microsoft would have made it a prime feature of DirectX 12.

Well at least you finally got one User to give you a Non-junk explanation about your question. Maybe now others will join in and give their opinions.
